RE: Replacing fridge.. might require sledgehammer.

I've done both. Between the two I would choose removing the door frame, which is not all that difficult. Would it fit if you removed the trim? Miles

RE: The search continues off to Fla.

Personally, I wouldn't buy an RV from the Florida area because of rust and corrosion. I would look to the southwest instead. Miles

RE: Travel nurse thinking of buying a TT....advice appreciated!!

Hello; my wife is a nurse at UCH and is considering turning into a traveler some day. You don't say where you are at in Colorado, but there are plenty of dog daycare places around the Denver area. Miles

RE: Outside storage door

I have a similar problem with the door to my generator compartmant. My plan is to take off the inner and outer skin of the door, install new wood, then put the door back together. Maybe this would work for you. Miles

I have had both kinds in my RV's. There are tradeoffs to both. I don't know if trade-in value is a concern for you or not, it doesn't really affect my choice. As to your questions: 1) No-one on a forum can give you a good answer. You need to do your own research and test the refrigerator model you intend to buy. Take a clamp-on ammeter and measure start-up and running draw. Figure out an average duty-cycle figure for your operating environment. Look-up the efficiency of your inverter. Calculate a daily amp-hour figure and match that against your available capacity and recharge capability. The start-up draw frequently causes problems with this set-up. 2) I don't use one. 3) I would use a pure-sine wave inverter for the reefer and electronics. 4) I've never had any problems. Miles

RE: Dometic Fridge will not turn on

Did you check the fuses on the circuit board? Miles

RE: Almost settled on Colorado's Front Range

With your rig I would head up to Rainbow Lakes outside of Nederland. Bring your hiking and fishing gear. Miles

RE: Two Battery Banks

I have 3 battery banks so I can go for a couple of days without having to run the generator. The first is a set of golf carts, the other 2 are AGM's. Both of the AGM battery banks are controlled by relays that work automatically. When the batteries are being discharged the relays are open and I have all of the capacity of the three banks available. When 120 volt AC is present the relays close and the three banks are isolated from each other. The AGM banks have their own AGM charger that works automatically. The golf carts are charged by the house converter. Let me know if you have any questions about how to set it up. Miles

RE: Central Wisconsin Camping - Where do you go?

Baraboo area, but I like Devil's Lake State Park. Miles

RE: Scary things encountered

Years ago while on a camping trip in the Boundary Waters, I woke up one morning to screams and shouts from my fellow campers. I got out of my tent just as a 6' bear lumbered right past me. Our food packs were hung 15' up in the air between two trees about ten feet apart at one end of the camp. The bear and his friend climbed up the adjoining trees and reached over and effortlessly disemboweled the packs with one swipe of their paws, spilling the contents onto the ground. Then they climbed back down and leisurely ate their fill, oblivious to us as we watched. We were mesmerized. When they were done they walked right between us out of the camp and back to the woods. We had to go home early. Miles

RE: Onan generator problems.--Update Problem solved.

I would do three things: Take a look at the spark plugs to see if they indicate an issue, pull the carburetor and blow out the passages with some compressed air, and try a new fuel pump. Miles On edit: Also check the air intake to make sure there is no obstruction.

RE: Golf Cart Batteries

The charger is not as important as how you maintain the batteries. As was suggested, connect them in series and any decent 12-volt charger with a deep-cycle setting will do. I have a couple of chargers I bought from Sears. I also have a Schumacher I bought at an auto store. Make sure that the batteries are fully charged when you put the unit away after a trip. If it is going to be stored more than a couple of weeks, put the batteries on a trickle charger. Check the electrolyte level often. I check mine once a month. I also keep a desulfator connected to my golf carts when they are in storage. Miles

RE: Seeking Opinion on F53 Chassis A/C repair cost

I'd get a second opinion. Is there an auto AC shop nearby? Miles

RE: Campgrounds not far from Denver International Airport

I believe that Cherry Creek SP has sewer. Miles

RE: Campgrounds not far from Denver International Airport

From DIA to Cherry Creek SP is about 25 miles or 30 mins. Never been there but from the pictures, Denver Meadows looks like a parking lot to me. Colorado State Parks are hard to beat. Miles

RE: Older Rv Looking For Parts for Repairs

I actually had to replace that light cover on my HR. It was a standard size part that I was able to find at Camping World. Either CW or another RV dealer in your area should have one. Miles

RE: Older Rv Looking For Parts for Repairs

Does it look like this? What parts do you need? By the way, welcome to the forums! Miles

RE: can not propane inside MH

Welcome to the Forums. If the tank is full of air then you need to bleed it until you get propane out of the bleed valve. It is a good idea to check for air before every fill. Miles

RE: Refurbished Garmin GPS

Our refurbished Garmin worked great, but some words of warning: When we called Garmin to get an update, they refused. The unit was still registered to the previous owner. Regardless of the fact that we bought it with factory seals on the package, we could never update it. Miles

RE: Is there a market for refurbished camper

The problem with a really nice old RV is that it is still just an old RV. My HR is worth far more to me than it would ever be worth to someone else. They just aren't very good investments. Miles
